I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo(s) of representative skin to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.

Please check that the photo(s) is in focus prior to uploading it. These red bumps usually indicate a superficial spreading pyoderma - bacterial skin infection - which can be associated with demodectic mange but not necessarily so. Happy Jack Mange Dip is palliative only. It doesn't kill the demodectic mange mites. Whether or not mange mites are present, a pyoderma is usually treated with an antibiotic in the cephalosporin class such as cephalexin for 3-4 weeks and 1 week past clinical signs. Bathing twice weekly in a chlorhexidine- or benzoyl peroxide-containing shampoo should hasten resolution of the infection. The shampoos can be found over the counter where dog supplies are sold. The antibiotic is a prescription drug available only from an attending vet. (We’re not allowed to prescribe through this venue.) Please continue our conversation if you wish.
